A kind of technical aproach to CI (intermediate level and higher).
This is a technical workshop around basic movements and pathways in CI. I will share my favorites, which support and shape my dance. But the focus is on the inside of the movement. I want to look for the specific taste of a movement. I want to explore the colorboard of different delights of typical CI movements. Folding, opening, reaching, pushing, squeezing, swinging, floating, rebouncing, falling ... alone and with a partner. They all have their specific joy. I believe that the more precise and specific the inside felt quality of a movement or a touch is the more precise the movement will become on a technical level. And it allows that technique is based on a physical sensation. Then the step into feeling or being fully involved is very close. And here the dance I am interested in begins.
I believe that the base of CI is technical: It is the knowledge about sharing and transfering weight and the miracle that the point of contact can roll. The technique is based on human anatomy and physics. That's the reason why so many diffrent cultures can easily communicate through CI. But the dance is what lies beyond the technique. The dance doesn't want to be exercised, it wants to be tasted and eaten.
You will look at the human skeleton and some muscles. You will try to do movements, which I suggest. You will listen to the physical sensation and try to turn it into delight, alone, with the support of a partner and in partnering forms. And you will dance a lot because this is the place to integrate the new.
